The partnership between PubFactory and TrendMD will allow publishers to increase discoverability of their content on PubFactory and on external websites.

TrendMD and PubFactory announce a new partnership to make content recommendation engine available across the platform. PubFactory’s technology platform and publishing services have been adopted by prestigious publishers like OUP, DeGruyter, Brill, and the IMF. Today, the PubFactory hosts 1,400+ journals and 400,000+ books along with reference works, databases, and other content types making it the only truly content agnostic platform and service provider in scholarly publishing.

“We are excited to work with TrendMD to improve user experience and to more broadly expose our publishers content both on PubFactory and through external channels. TrendMD’s recommendation service is compelling in that it provides recommendations based on relatedness ranking, article popularity, and individual user behavior,” says Jose Fossi, Vice President, Client Services, PubFactory.

Paul Kudlow, CEO and Co-Founder of TrendMD, says “The beauty of our partnership with PubFactory - beyond offering our recommendation service to their diverse publisher base - is that they’ve made platform tools available to publishers that allow for setup of our service quickly and easily, and in some cases independently of PubFactory staff. We’re thrilled to work with a technology partner that gets out of the way of their publishers and is committed to the meaningful dissemination of scholarly publishing content.”

With a rapidly growing index consisting of more than 12 million articles from over 3,300 publications, TrendMD’s “smart recommendations” tackle the perpetual publisher challenge of connecting readers to the right content at the right time. We are excited for PubFactory's journals to join the network.
